The satellite cities of Dallas continue to be leaders in planning and development of suburban America. The successes of the suburbs will eventually lead to success in reinstituting a Cosmopolitian Core City. While vitrually every once true urban setting suffered during five decades of growth dominated by the convenience of lifestyle built into suburban neighborhoods, a collection of factors has led a growing percentage of the population to prefer the dense urban lifestyle.
The next 50 years (two generations) will rebuild the segment of urban American once thriving in the younger American cities. Dallas more than any other metropolitian area has laid the ground work to reinstitute a ture urban core into a giant suburban metropolis. A twenty mile long swath of recreation friendly green space lining the center of the metro area and off grade public transportation channeling suburban residents into the center of the metro area are perhaps the two actions which will most greatly enhance the quality of life in Urban Dallas; however, the ease with which each suburban area/community can accommodate 10,000- 15,000 new residents every year is reflected in the inertia of the primary downtown urban environment. The better they make it in Frisco, Southlake, HEB, De Soto, Red Oak etc, the better they will have it in downtown Dallas. Every new urbanist development like Frisco Square will contribute to the sustainability of niche event and destination variety in downtown Dallas.
